Dedicated to Brent, In this fun video, a snake has a really gross (!) abscess removed along with her gall-bladder, to which it was attached. She is perfectly fine now, according to the video, and all’s well. I thought this was interesting. Hope you like it too.

To address a question, the Doctor replied:
Thanks for your comments…
Snakes should do well without a gall bladder. It is a procedure commonly done in people with no ill effects. It is also done on rare occasions in dogs with no complications. Some animals such as horses don’t even have a gall bladder!
Post-operatively she woke up pretty slowly. It took here about 1.5 hours to start to breathe onο»Ώ her own. Within a short time after that she was moving around and acting perfectly normally.
